    So - you want to become a volunteer - but are wondering what you might get out of it?

    First off, let me say if you're only interested in volunteering because you want to get rewarded with physical products or money - you're going to be disappointed. That's not how we work!

    We DO however reward our volunteers with other types of things, including:

    • site swag
    • exclusive opportunities
    • special 'volunteer only' projects and challenges
    • private team forums
    • private volunteer only Slack channel
    • weekly updates from the Community Manager (that's me!)

    On top of all that you also become part of an exclusive club. It's all about doing good and helping our members with their problems and questions as fast as you can. It's a humbling experience, and I have a feeling once you start engaging with our members, you're going to meet a lot of great people, and maybe even make some lifelong friends in the process.

    If you're still interested, make sure you read about all of our different volunteer teams in this forum. Chances are there's a volunteer team for you, provided you're up for the challenge!!

    Some volunteer groups here at CB DO use BBM. The Mod & Ambassadors have BBM groups, plus there IS a Trusted Member BBM group. HOWEVER Slack is our official communication tool.

    I've got a couple of questions;
    - I tried to start a thread in the lounge forum, but only authorised persons can ( the thread was to ask who can view the volunteer hub, just members or the entire c b community);
    - are we new trusted members invited to join the bbm thread and slack (whatever that is, lol. I'll need to look it up) 😀

    Edit
    I suppose if the trusted members were invited to cb (or mobile nation's) slack, or the trusted members bbm, then we would be given the links?

    Thanks

    Yeah, Slack is much nicer, at the very least because it's browser-based as well as having an app. Some BBM update long ago kicked me out of the ambassador group and I never noticed. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Actually the Trusted Member group is a bit too big for Slack, TM's are brought in as needed. A bunch just came in to help test the new iMore app for example.

    Ya I've heard through the grapevine ( and that grapevine will talk) that the slack group is pretty jammed as it is.

    Thx Rich! As usual!

    What Rich was so politely trying to say was, you're not needed. With ~115k posts, no one else would get a chance say anything if you were on Slack.

    Thanks James and everyone for allowing me to help!

    I tried to redact some things like the website for example, because I in NO way want to promote them. Not even sure what it is just wanted a site I knew they would block, FORGOT the title bar lol Just disregard, I just google searched gaming because I know the city blocks that. (And I don't mind that coming up in my record )
